The article examines the fragment D. 23.1.14 of the Digest with reference to a recent debate on the age of entering into engagements. The author considers the arguments that the fragment is not authentic, but rejects them. D. 23.1.14 contains original statements by the Roman jurist Modestinus, which were summarised and epitomised by scholars in late antiquity. It was debated whether an impubes, in order to be allowed to enter into an engagement, should understand the nature of an engagement, and whether an impubes who had reached the age of seven might do so.
